“War is a racket.”

In hindsight, war in Ukraine was inevitable. The forces within Europe and the US simply wanted it too much for Russia to decline their invitation.
Russia’s initial moves in Ukraine have sparked sincere controversy as to what their real goals are and whether they can achieve them militarily and/or culturally.
That is an open-ended question that is explored deeply this month.
With things spiraling out of control this quickly this issue is far longer than normal for us to get a grip on where things may be headed.
And at first glance, where they are headed is chilling.
While Putin’s war in Ukraine is a existential one for Russia, it is the same for DAVOS and the Neoconservatives that picked this fight.
Don’t let the incessant propaganda fool you, Putin just picked the time, not the place.

Hey, Tom. I am looking forward to this read. It isn’t showing up on my Patreon though. Am I missing something? Perhaps my millennial boomer-tech isn’t working properly. Thanks!
Are you signed up at the $12/month level? The newsletter tier?
Looking forward to your next bulletin Tom. If Biden is indicted, then the memetic collapse will be resounding throughout Europe. Individual European nations which are fast becoming economically unworkable, are going to be in a state of upheaval, to say the least. The Euro will be collapsing to the sound of the barricades, and then all bets are off. It seems only a matter of time before Nato becomes a historical footnote.
I am still unsure why a banking crisis in Europe would not spread to the US.
It would spread to the US but order of operations matters. And soon, I’ll explain why I think the Fed now has the tools to stave off the worst of that as well. But, i have to be sure of my thesis before I go forward.
“The forces within Europe and the US simply wanted it too much for Russia to decline their invitation.” Idiotic.
It’s actually a perfect synopsis a clever turn of phrase. What do you think Putin’s several letters to the US StTe Dept and President over the past year outlining the terms under which he would not advance were all about? Why did NATO and the US ignore those warnings gs and refuse to even come to an honest negotiating table?
Tom, do subscriptions to your newsletter begin the date of initial payment and end 1 year/month later on same date? It seems like if you subscribe toward the end of the month Patreon requires payment again on April 1. Thanks in advance!
Hi Tom, one thing I value about yourself is that you seem to read the tea leaves correctly while being a great italian american political/economy economist. The blogger curtis yarvin likes to give kudos to italian economists/political scientists because they hone in very well on aesthetics, have you ever thought of talking with him? He is also a poet as well.
